|Where:||London at the Cromwell statue outside the Houses of Parliament|
Oliver Cromwell died on September 3rd 1658 and each year his anniversary is celebrated by the Cromwell Association, who promote study of the great man’s life and times. Cromwell was Lord Protector in the Interrregnum or Commonwealth period, when Britain was a republic during the seventeenth century following the Civial Wars. It’s essentially a society event but members of the public are very welcome to watch from the pavement, as it’s held at Cromwell’s Statue outside the Houses of Parliament.
If the 3rd falls on a Sunday alternative arrangements are made (see website for details when this happens – it’s not due to be a Sunday for several years).
